      Almost exactly the same situation to this one NL2 FR AA vs loose passive opponent except here I get much better odds to call - I need only 14.42% equity.
      Both opponents loose passive.

      Preflop: could have raised to $0.12 due to both of my opponents being loose.

      Flop: should have raised pot ($0.4). I still fear that if I raise too big my opponents won't call. However, I need to understand that in NL2 bet size does not matter too much as long as my opponent likes his hand. This means I should always play my hand as fast as possible.
      Turn: should have bet more - $1.20 or even pot - as the board is very wet.
      River: it always sucks when loose passive players wake up to me on the river. The board is super dangerous and I need 14.42% equity. I'm not sure if I have enough though because I can't think of combos that I beat that would play this way.

      Preflop against a fishy opponent you can make it 6bb.

      On the flop I would probably make it $0.4, but I wouldn't say this sizing is bad.

      Your turn bet is good.

      As played, as much as you wouldn't like folding the river, I think it is best there. Quite a lot of better hands there and I don't think he is going to shove weaker hands here at all.
